J: Mom, I love you infinity days. If someone punch me, then I do not love them infinity days
Dad: You need three vegetables on your sandwich.
C: Does bacon count?
Dad: No, but nice try!
J: These are love glasses! Here, Mom! *takes them off and throws them at me*
(2/14) Happy Valentine's Day! Dad and I didn't coordinate, so the kiddos got double the chocolate. Oops. The boys all had parties at school, and came home all sugared up. C had lacrosse practice today, and the twins ran, and ran with the other kids there. I snuck in a run while they were all out, and met some pretty tired kiddos back at the house.
(2/15) Work day for Dad, and my day to work in the twinsies' class. We hit the gym before school, and had a fun day in class. The kids in my room played Memory, and with play-doh. C had a make-up hockey practice this evening, and the twinsies and I decided to hang out at home.
(2/16) Work day for Dad & me, and school for the kiddos. C had hockey this evening, and I took the twinsies to the gym with me after I got home from work.
(2/17) I worked from home today to get a jump on traffic as soon as C got home from school. We packed up and headed to Wenatchee for a hockey tournament. We stopped in Leavenworth to get dinner (ended up at Mongolian Grill.....cuz why not?), and got to look at the pretty lights briefly. I love Leavenworth! Once we got in, we got settled, and let the kiddos watch TV until late, and then we all crashed.
(2/18) Two games on tap today. We lost our first one, and tied the second. It's weird coming all the way out to Wenatchee to face Everett, and then Sno-King (Renton)... Dad and C went to a Wild game this evening, and I stayed with the twins. I turned out the lights, and they were sawing logs by 7:20pm. Guess they were tired! C got to take his helmet and sit with his team down on the bench during the Wild's warm-up. Pretty cool experience!
(2/19) We bummed around the hotel room today. I took the twins out to play in the parking lot snow after we all started to go a little stir crazy. C hit the hot tub outside in the freezing cold with his teammates, and we all met back up to go to lunch before his 3rd game. They faced a tough team, and essentially his team just gave up and let the goals keep coming. They lost 7-1 today. Oma and Opa made it out for the game today, and we got to go out to dinner with them this evening. C's team had a banquet, so while he went to that, the twins and us parentals went with the grands out to dinner. We retired earlyish and went to sleep around 8pm since we were all beat.
(2/20) Last day of the tourney. C's team won big today (9-0), and secured 5th place overall. We said goodbye to Oma & Opa, and then hit Sonic for lunch on the way back home. Yummo!
(2/21) We had an awesome day! Nanan stayed with the twins, while C and I went up skiing/snow-boarding with Grandma & Granddad. C has made huge progress, and went down Daisy about 5 times. He took a lesson this afternoon, and I caught up with him on my way down Hogs. He keeps trying to convince me that I need to try snowboarding. Maybe some day...
(2/22) I was off from work today, and the twins are still on break from school. I took the twinadoes to the gym, and then we did a cleaning shift at the preschool. After that, I came home and swapped out the little boys for the big one, and ran him to his appointment. We went to the library after and stocked him back up on books. Dad took the twins to their game tonight, and Grandma & Granddad went to watch the twins. J chilled in goal for a bit, and D periodically got skated around by his coach again. Hilarious!
(2/23) Work day for Dad & me, school for C, and the twins got to go play at Amanda's. She took them to Altitude to get their jump on. They had a great time playing with her boys, and were tiiiiiirrrrred by the time bedtime rolled around. C had hockey this evening, and the little boys and I went to the gym after I got home from work.
(2/24) Work day for Dad and me, school for C, and the little boys went to Amanda's. Dad went up to fetch the teenager for the weekend. We haven't seen her in so long!
(2/25) Lazyish day for us today. The twins had hockey practice this morning, and C has a game this afternoon.
